Today is Groundhog Day! In a new survey about the holiday in the National Today, they found many folks rank this holiday way more seriously than you (and we) might!
1. 4.2% of people believe the groundhog ALWAYS gets his prediction right, and almost one out of five think he’s right at least two-thirds of the time. He’s not, by the way . . . he’s only about 39% accurate, which is worse than a coin flip.
2. 6% of people watch the movie “Groundhog Day” every year to celebrate.
3. 1% have traveled to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to watch the groundhog ceremony.
4. And 4% of people say Groundhog Day is one of their favorite holidays.
As for this year, 67% of people predicted Punxsutawney Phil would see his shadow, which means six more weeks of winter. Lauren Kelly will need some more jackets!
